Its main structure includes the BZM chamber choir and the BZM Ensemble, which accompanies all the cantatas with baroque instruments.
In 2014, thanks to Salvat Foundation’s patronage, the Bach grant was set up. Its aim is to help the training and promotion of young solo artists around J.S. Bach’s vocal music, focusing its activity in the cantatas for soloists.
Every year, the Foundation awards grants to four soloists (soprano, contralto, tenor and baritone-bass). Salvat Foundation’s Bach grant provides singers with economic funds, as well as being linked to various concerts throughout the year, mainly in Barcelona. It also offers masterclasses with renowned musicians such as Carlos Mena, Catherine Fuge or Miriam Feuersinger, among others. In 2016, German tenor Benjamin Bruns gave an exclusive masterclass for grant holders.
All concerts are accompanied by the BZM Ensemble, formed by musicians with long careers performing with Baroque instruments, following historical criteria.
